It's Alive!

By Phil Plait | August 22, 2011 2:30 pm

Last year, I wrote about James Dunbar’s adorable book Bang!, a cartoon history of the origin of the Universe. It’s really cute and great for kids, and now he’s followed it up with a sequel: It’s Alive!, about how life originated on Earth.

Like the first book, it’s well done, simplified without being dumbed down, and actually fun to read. I imagine parents would get a kick out of reading it with their kids, and I love the idea of solid science, whimsically portrayed, so that both young ‘uns and grown ups can enjoy it.

The book is available for free as a PDF, or $15.95 for a paperback version.
